Lila Rose, founder of the pro-life group Live Action, speaks at a rally outside of the National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C. on August 27, 2015, where she other concerned activists and pastors called on the gallery to remove the bust of Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger. |

Lila Rose, founder and head of the pro-life organization Live Action, posted a comment to Twitter on Monday evening denouncing the bill's failure.

"Today, 46 senators voted AGAINST protecting preborn children from abortion after 20 weeks. They voted IN FAVOR of dismembering and poisoning to death children beyond five months, who are often viable and can feel pain. This is extreme and beyond heartless," said Rose.

Rose included a link to a Live Action statement, in which the group declared that "because of 46 senators, the United States continues to hold a terrible distinction on human rights: it remains a nation that allows elective abortion until birth."
